Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940

Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World 1890-1940 - George Chauncey I didn't think Chauncey completely differentiated between activities (i.e., sex acts), lifestyles, and group consciousness -- but maybe that's because these things were very confused and developed differently for different people. I also wondered how much of the story was really specific to New York, and how representative that really was of the Gay Male World?
